Teal Tuesday: Koi Pond Nail Art

Hello all! I know I have been a bit lazy but I did feel like freehanding some nail art this weekend :)

I am so glad I did. It is so cute.

This will also be my Teal Tuesday manicure (freestyle, even though I have Zoya Zuza and a England St. George) because tomorrow is my wedding anniversary and I won't have time to do any challenges!

Base: China Glaze Flyin' High
Glitter: Rainbow Honey Koi Pond
Fish: WnW White Creme, WnW Black Creme, Zoya Arizona, FingerPaints Cordur-Orange

I thought it looked a little bare so I added
Fish: Venique Havana Glam (for sparkle), WnW Break the Ice (for sparkle)
Lilypads: Sinful Last Chance, NYC High Line Green

and I topped the glitter with NYS Hot Baby Blue to make a very subtle jelly sammitch :)

I wanted them to shimmer at different angles which is why I added shimmery polish :)

I added some Essence Let's Get Lost as water ripples (very subtle) using some acetone to water it down

And finally, with a piece from my etsy store 

What do you think? They were easy to paint (I try to have a light hand so i don't mess up too bad) and I think everyone could do it :))
